More About the Author

It's hard to believe that not so many years ago the 'experts' insisted women didn't have sexual fantasies. Clearly they hadn't talked to women because the vast majority do. Many are willing to talk about what turns them on. The imagination is a powerful tool when it comes to enhancing sexual satisfaction. It'd be a shame not to feed the carnal mind.

It was examining her own secret sexual desires that led Vonna Harper to write erotic fiction about modern women who submit to dominant men in and out of typical (if there is such a thing) BDSM relationships.

To state the obvious, Vonna is adamant about maintaining the line between fantasy and reality. It is one thing to imagine or read about surrendering control to a sexy and powerful man she may call Master and the dark act that breaks the law and emotionally wounds victims. Vonna writes escapism, not reality for a mature audience.

Disclaimer aside, Vonna welcomes readers into imaginary worlds where her heroines explore life under the control of masterful men who direct them (sometimes forcefully) to experience the ultimate in sexual satisfaction. Readers aren't going to find typical romances tied up in pretty bows in Vonna's books. The focus is on the heroine's emotional and physical journey to being trained, owned, and used, sometimes as captive sex slaves. The men are flawed and complex--and in charge.

If you're interested in reading more about the role sexual fantasies, especially submissive ones play for today's women, here are several articles that explain the appeal to approximately fifty percent of the female population:

Spirit of the Wolf by Vonna Harper
* I received a copy of this book from Kensington in exchange for an honest review*

Matt is a cattle rancher that has a special connection to the land. He has lived with Santos and Addie for years until Santos was found dead where he had been thrown from his horse. The wolves have returned and the ranchers are getting nervous and want to hunt them. He senses their leader, Ghost Wolf whenever he is out on the land. He fears the legacy his father may have left him, his father was Native American.

Cat is a horse trainer and one of the few females in the area. She is drawn to Matt and sparks fly when they are together. She is concerned about the changes in Matt's behavior and the fact that she can hear/sense Golf Wolf too. Matt is becoming more domineering in their lovemaking and acts like he is possessed. He doesn't seem to comprehend her when she tells him no and it's like something has taken over his body.

The Paiute once roamed the lands. Their belief in Matich seemed to skip a generation and many of the stories have been lost. The cave on Cat's land holds all the secrets, if they can just survive the confrontation with Ghost Wolf.

This story seemed to take me a long time to read because at times it was hard to follow. I knew going in this was part of the Aphrodisia line but was a little surprised by the sex scenes between Matt and Cat. I wasn't expecting the level of dominance and disregard that Matt exhibited toward Cat, almost to the point of non consensual sex. Cat's behavior also bothered me slightly because she just brushed over the incidents like it was ok, even though she seemed upset about it at the time.

On a positive note, the last 100 pages or so totally redeemed this book in my eyes.

Sensuous and thought-provoking, Spirit of the Wolf is not only a well-written book, but author Vonna Harper manages to evoke deep emotions as well as physical responses with her primal Native tale. Elements of the story reflect the harsh reality of life for many Native people, while at the same time she shows us the healing and transformative power of love. The author has obviously done her research. I received this book as a gift and I look forward to reading her other books.

I love the story.. I had read Night of the Hawk first, which was better, but this story also provided an interesting read.

Format: Paperback
In Oregon, ranch owner Matt Yaye grieves the loss of his friend Santo who along with his wife Addie took him in under their wings. Cat Alward trains horses and people to ride them. When Matt and Cat first met in a bar, they could not keep their hands off one another. That attraction remains intense though neither wants to explore why.

Meanwhile the Fish & Wildlife Commission has begun repopulating the desert area with wolves in an attempt to balance the shaky ecosystem. The Feds are unaware that the packs are led by angry Ghost Wolf, the spirit of a Paiute Indian who wants to kill all the whites who have destroyed the land. As Ghost Wolf sends his wolves to attack of humans while Matt, Cat and others hunt the alpha.

Spirit of the Wolf is an exciting erotic romantic fantasy built upon a Native American legend. Although the story line is at times difficult to follow with abrupt changes, readers will enjoy the adventures of Matt and Cat as they deal with something they don't quite believe exists, raging Ghost Wolf.

I'm giving "Spirit of the Wolf" 3.5 Stars.

Set in the high desert of central Oregon, where the land is harsh and the people are tough. Two people come together on a spiritual journey. Matt and Cat's sexual attraction that is primal and raw. Both of them fear what is happening to them, but are unsure what to do about it.

Cat Alward as roamed all her life never setting down roots for very long. With no desire to take over her parents business she has an epiphany one day watching an older Indian work with horses. Starving for a home for her own, she purchases a small farm in remote Oregon. She now trains horses and works with people on their equestrian skills.

Matt Yaye is a cattle rancher with a past. Adopted son to Addie and Santo, he came to the ranch as a young troubled teenage boy. Now the ranch is everything to him. He loves the land and will do anything to protect his remote ranch. After the sudden death of Santo, Matt has felt something in the air, a coming storm. Determined to keep Addie and his ranch safe, Matt looks to the hills for clues.

Since the moment Cat and Matt met there were sparks, no more like explosions. The erotic pull to each other is unexplainable. Now there is proof that wolves have moved into the area, causing problems for the locals. Matt begins to change, but Cat can't seem to drag herself away from him. Their once purely sexual relationship has taken on a whole new level, becoming even more erotic and dominate.

I have never read a story like "Spirit of the Wolf". Maybe I was expecting a werewolf story or something paranormal in nature. This story is neither. It centers more on a legend of the local Paiute Indian tribe.

The feelings the book invoked in me were surprising.
